Welcome friends!

My name is Amber and I specialize in helping people with anxiety, children on the Autism Spectrum, and supporting young adults navigate college, mood challenges, and life.

I’m excited that you are considering counseling. It’s a big step and in my opinion, one that should be thought out. I like to encourage everyone that I work with to take time to find a counselor that’s a good fit. Someone you relate to and that you feel comfortable with. To help you get to know me, I’ve shared a picture of me, a video, and my background.

Clients typically work with me because I’m down to earth and I like to make psychology simple. My sessions are relaxed and constructive. I love giving homework so you have work to do in the session and outside of it. I like to share who I am so it doesn’t feel like you do not know me. We are building a relationship and trust is important.

I’m excited to work with you!

Calmness For Depression

Depression often impacts people by causing symptoms that can include a decrease in energy, low mood, lack of motivation, and low self-esteem. Counseling can create transformational growth in so many ways. Together we can learn the deep-rooted issues connected to depression while developing healthy coping skills aimed at reducing the bad or negative symptoms. Each session gives you space to share your story while learning clinically effective ways to improve self-confidence, self-esteem, and happiness. Start counseling today. 

Counseling For Anxious People

Do you struggle with anxiety? Do you have moments when your worry feels out of control and difficult to manage? Living with anxiety can be challenging and often leads to difficult moments. I love helping anxious people understand why they struggle with anxiety and build clinically effective ways to tame it. You are in every way able to live your best life with anxiety. 

Mood Disorders

Using therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), I help individuals learn coping mechanisms, develop healthier thought patterns, and enhance their emotional well-being. The goal of counseling for mood disorders is to empower individuals to manage their symptoms, improve their overall mental health, and foster a sense of resilience and self-awareness. 

Autism and Confidence

I have a deep passion and hold extensive experience in working with children and adults on the Autism Spectrum. Autism counseling often involves creating tailored strategies to improve communication, social interactions, and daily functioning. The aim is to empower individuals with autism to navigate the complexities of their world, enhance their quality of life, and build on their strengths.

College Students

The journey of the college student isn’t always a fun packed weekend with one too many drinks. Sometimes it’s feeling alone in your dorm room regardless of how many people are around. It’s struggling to catch up and just when you thought you did, you are behind again. It’s working to somehow prepare now so that tomorrow things will work out. Amber remembers her years as a college student. The courses, the interactions, and as a therapist she has found herself with a desire to work with college students seeking counseling. If you are a college student and seeking counseling, take time to connect with Amber. Call 336-663-6570 to schedule an appointment or send her an email to ask questions [email protected]

What happens in a counseling session?

Counseling can be an exciting journey. It doesn’t have to be what we see on TV. Sitting across from a person holding a clipboard. Staring at you and you staring at them. A weird awkwardness.

No. Not here.

Counseling is this beautiful process. It’s warm and inviting. There are moments of laughter and others of calmness. You get to stand when you talk or sit. You get to share what feels comfortable and learn how to address the areas that are a little bit more difficult.

 

When you start counseling, you’ll notice that there will be structure to the sessions. The counselor will go over what’s called a treatment plan. In simple words, it’s this document that your counselor will create to highlight why you are seeking counseling, what you are struggling with, and the goals that you have.

Do you offer in office and teletherapy?

Your sessions can be online or in the office. It depends on what fits your needs.

the counseling sessions confidential?

Yes, our counseling sessions are confidential and private. There are a few areas that are not confidential due to their dynamics. For instance, if you as the client want me to send records to another provider such as your psychiatrist. This would create an example of the records not being confidential as we are sharing them with a third party. This would only take place if you sign a consent form, also known as a release of information. Please know that I will always keep you in the loop when such matters take place.
